Bonza's first revenue service was MCY-MKY (BNZ593/594) which commenced as scheduled on 14/2/23 flown by VH-UIK. The next service on the launch schedule was to be MCY-AVV commencing on 21/2/23.

However, Bonza was due to commence its MCY-PPP service (BNZ777/778) on 31/3/23 but it looks as though it started on 16/2/23 flown by VH-UJT. Does anyone know whether there has been a revision to the launch schedule posted by Radi on #174, with some earlier commencing dates? Alternatively, the PPP flight could have been a one off. If amended, can any changes be added to this thread. Alternatively, the PPP flight could have been a one off.

Many thanks for any updated information.

The first flight was a launch flight not a commencement of RPT flights, it had two paying passengers on board and lots of press etc and a non standard timing of essentially a day trip to proserpine. There were no similar flight subsequent to this. The flight on the 16th may well be a training flight but there are flights next week that are bookable so may well be an advance of the schedule!
